About us

Darwin Life-Nadiya is a united team of US and Ukrainian scientists who have combined experience in molecular genetics, embryology and human reproduction to develop the newest methods for achieving the pregnancy with a healthy baby in women with the high risk of mitochondrial pathology in their offspring, as well as in complicated cases of infertility forms with high genetic risk. Experimental technology of the nuclear transfer allows:

  • to receive a genetically native embryo for parents with healthy mitochondria in case of the high risk transmission of mitochondrial pathology;
  • to reduce the risk of egg meiotic chromosomal abnormalities associated with age factors;
  • minimize the genetically-associated effects of the block maturation of eggs and development of embryos.
